It's best to leave it alone. Ive never had one take longer than three days to go away after a shot, and I don't do anything to it except wash it in the shower, maybe ice it a bit.

....Okay strike that. This is the first time this has happened to me, but only one of the three I had injected on Monday has gone completely, one a little bit, and the third has not gone down at all. Not even a tiny bit. Starting to get a bit worried.

ive had about 2-3 cortisone shots i think. anyways, yes, in the perfect world it would go down in with 48-72 hrs, but that is not always the case. in my experience, it always took more than 3 days.

there were a few stages. first the redness goes down, usually within 2-3 days, then the next 4-7 days is when it slowly starts to shrink, and 8+ days you hardly notice anything. i would give it a week, and if u can still feel/see the bump, then get another c-shot.

but yeah, just leave it alone.
